New user and new photographer. I'm looking to upgrade from a point and shoot after the birth of my beautiful first daughter (seems like new children spur allot of camera purchases). I've been looking into reviews for about a week now and have pretty much settled on a PM1. I love that it's the same picture quality of it's bigger brother, just with some minor tweaks to getting to the controls. To me it's seems like an insane value. I looked at the NEX-N, but added cost was a factor (trying to stay under $700). I have very limited experience with photography, but I'm really excited about learning a new skill. Advice needed: I need a camera that my wife can use in its simplest form (point/shoot, good picture quality), but something that will be a teaching tool for me to learn how to take amazing photos. I like the idea of the M43s kinda point and shoot aspect, but I don't want to limit myself into not getting a better teaching tool. Aperture, shutter speed, focal length are all terms that I'm unfamiliar with. Portable and fast. Got to keep up with the little one. The PM1 seems small in the specs and feel, but with the kit lens it certainly won't fit in a pocket. Maybe with the lens detached it could fit in a diaper bag or purse. I think a pancake lens would certainly fix the issue, but those seem to be doubling the cost. I am planning on buying the 40-150 lens as part of a bundle deal (unless it's better to put the $120 somewhere else) The DSLR bodies are indeed larger, but with the lens attached I feel like I'm in the same boat as the PM1 in terms of carrying it around. Can I get a pancake lens on a DSLR? Coming into this I was sold on the PM1, but I got to thinking. for about $100 more I could get an entry level DSLR. It's bigger, heavier, appears to be more complicated (wife may be intimated). Until I really start using it, I won't realize the limitations of the bigger size. Long Story short. Newbie looking for first real camera to learn on and is simple to use for. PM1 or D3100?
